'Karius is Orlando Pirates material', 'Benni gave Rashford a PhD in finishing'

Loris Karius’s testing first-half display and Marcus Rashford’s elite finishing were the talking points among African supporters on Sunday as Manchester United defeated Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup final.

The German goalkeeper was at fault during the first half as the Red Devils took a 2-0 lead, and has born the brunt of fan criticism, although there was further praise too for England’s Rashford—who scored on the day—and the ongoing impact of Benni McCarthy behind the scenes.
